Mary Blevins Leaves Junior's After 43 Years

Earl Wilson/The New York Times

"Long before the cheesecake was famous at Junior's, the Brooklyn restaurant, Mary Blevins was a popular item.

Ms. Blevins, 68, was a waitress at Junior's for 43 years, sharing a countertop and conversation with visitors like Spike Lee and Mike Tyson, trainloads of tourists and regulars like Betty and Jimmy of Con Edison.

Eight days ago, on July 19, she worked her last shift at her old serving ground."

Sorry I never got to meet Mary Blevins. The article speaks of a bygone era.
